Protests @MamataOfficial over corruption, nepotism and politicization #Amphan relief distribution are rocking the State.

Worrisome Law and order scenario in East Midnapore, South and North 24 Parganas as BDO offices are being gheraoed. (1/4)
List of beneficiaries must be at Panchayat level- this will throw up lapses that call for correction @MamataOfficial

Sadly my alert to have relief distribution in transparent and accountable manner has not been heeded.

Relief distribution is not a political party affair. (2/4)
Lip facade will not work. Officials @MamataOfficial must face consequences for such omission acts and abandonment of their work to political party.

Officials must be booked for acts of omission and commission. Non entitled beneficiaries be penalized and benefit retrieved. (3/4)

To all #Mumbai citizens
From our cyclone #Amphan experience in Kolkata few days back, pointers ! #Nisarga

1. Fill extra water buckets
2. Charge your phones and battery packs to full
3. Be prepared to lose electricity, internet and phone network for 2-5 days.
4. Get mosquito and insect repellant as water logging will increase bug infestation around you.
5. lastly in case of rain accompanied with 100kmph wind, water will find its way through window gaps at home and office. Be prepared with towels to cover those gaps.

Good luck 👏🙏🏻

A depression over southeastern & adjoining east-central Arabian Sea this morning will likely turn into a severe cyclonic storm #Nisarga by June 3 mausam.imd.gov.in/backend/assets…
By June 3, the storm is likely to hit coastal areas in northern Maharashtra & southern Gujarat b/w Harihareshwar in Raigad district and Daman, with wind speeds of 90-100 kmph & gusting 110 kmph. These regions are on pre #cyclone alert
Very-heavy to extremely-heavy rainfall is expected in parts of both of these states and fishers have been advised to stay away. This would be the 2nd cyclone to hit India this year, 13 days after the super cyclone #Amphan lashed parts of West Bengal & Odisha on May 20

LOCUST ATTACK- CHALLENGES FOR FARMERS AHEAD

India is going to face a worst locust attack in past 27 years affecting its Agri-economy largely. The threat has just begun with huge swarms of insects entering Indian territory mainly Rajasthan, Punjab and Maharashtra.1/7 Image
India is already going through tough time due to #coronavirus pandemic, #amphan cyclone and migrant workers issue. #Rahu and #Ketu govern insects and mosquitoes. Currently, Ketu is transiting the #nakshatra of Moola whose presiding deity is Nritti, the goddess 2/7

#CycloneAmphan cracked Sundarban's lifelines: embankments. Why are these vital? Thread 👇Maybe we need to be more imaginative in how these lifelines and lives on the peripheries are reconstructed @moefcc @MamataOfficial @MahuaMoitra @India4Climate @UNEP @WWFINDIA @SanctuaryAsia
This is a photo I took in 2017 when the concrete embankments post #CycloneAila had just been constructed. The #Embankment Reconstruction Project was allocated a whopping Rs 5,032 crore/ GBP 562 million funded by @WorldBank to build cement and block walls @sayantanbera
After #AmphanSuperCyclone, several of these concrete embankments, 5 meters high and 30-40 meters wide, concretising 35,000 km peripheries of #Sundarbans
have collapsed, broken, and in many places have taken massive chunks of the riverbed down with them @GhoshAmitav

Those who are abusing me, Bengal CM, other Bengalis because I simply tweeted that the Prime Minister should help in this hour of #Amphan crisis, you guys can be all the great things you claim to be but not Indians. Please stop playing politics in the middle of this devastation.
No one blamed the PM for the cyclone. He is a very powerful man but even for him to orchestrate a cyclone of this severity is bit of a stretch. Was only asking for some attention and help in this hour of catastrophe which has unfortunately been missing.
The state government is doing its bit from what I hear. If the centre also helps out, maybe the healing will be faster. This is not the time for us vs them. It's the time to join forces and help save a state of the country, which is in dire straits.

Funny that entire national media in India either avoided this topic completely or talked a minute or two before switching over to talk about other random news items.
Is it because the impacted state in West Bengal?
The devastation which #CyclonAmphan has caused to WB is unparalleled & unprecedented. This was the most powerful storm ever in the Bay of Bengal in the 21st century. WB has been completely destroyed with dual impact of #Covid_19 & #AmphanCyclon

A crisis on top of a crisis: millions of people in India and Bangladesh brace for #Amphan, the strongest cyclone ever recorded over the Bay of Bengal, just as #Coronavirus has reached the Cox's Bazar refugee camps: oxf.am/3g3WxwD Our teams are responding w/local partners Image
Estimates suggest up to 14.2m people in coastal districts are likely to be affected, with nearly 1.4 million displaced and up to 600,000 houses damaged in Bangladesh. Evacuation from high-risk areas is to begin today in Bangladesh, and is already underway in India. #CycloneAmphan Image

Ricordatevi che potrebbe sempre andar peggio.
Il superciclone #Amphan è diretto verso le coste di #india e #Bangladesh
(thread)
edition.cnn.com/2020/05/18/asi…
Una cosuccia che muove venti a 270 all'ora.

E pensare che è solo il primo ciclone della stagione 2020, che si preannuncia pesante fin dagli esordi.
Ad alcuni sembrerà strano, ma gli scienziati collegano l'inedita potenza di questo fenomeno all'eccezionale riscaldamento dell'Oceano Indiano, che ora sta attorno ai 30°

Update: Cyclone #Amphan is now on its final approach toward landfall in less than 24 hours near the India/Bangladesh border.

The storm is no longer a super cyclone, but @IMDWeather is still expecting a surge of sea level of up to 5 meters (16 feet). This storm is deadly serious.
The worst of Cyclone Amphan's storm surge (up to 5 meters / 16 feet) will be near and to the east of the point of landfall. The entire delta area of West Bengal and Bangladesh, and to a lesser extent, Odisha and Burma, will be greatly affected.
The eye of #CycloneAmphan has begun to show up on India's weather radar.

Landfall on Wednesday evening, less than 24 hours from now.

Just in: The JTWC has upgraded Super Cyclone #Amphan to 145kt (270kph).

Amphan is now the strongest cyclone ever recorded in the Bay of Bengal, passing the 1999 Odisha cyclone (260kph).

Amphan is a potential catastrophic disaster for West Bengal, Bangladesh, and Burma.
Super Cyclone #Amphan is still on course for landfall in West Bengal on Wednesday, in about 36 hours.

Even if the storm's winds weaken, it will bring a massive surge of sea level ashore, as high as 6 meters (20 feet).

This storm should be the main focus of people in its path.
The future track of Amphan is clear. It will make landfall just west of the India/Bangladesh border.

The main uncertainty is the storm's strength at the time of landfall. The winds will be weaker than now, but storm surge could be enormous – the deadliest part of any cyclone.

Stay safe Odisha. In our thoughts.
